A BOP is a package policy typically combining General
Liability and Property Insurance, along with other optional coverage,
for small to medium sized businesses in lower risk businesses classes.
A BOP may be available depending on the type of business, annual sales,
number of employees and other factors.
A BOP typically includes General Liability to cover
your commercial liability and property insurance for physical assets,
such as contents, that are leased or owned. The package insurance policy
may also cover loss of business income and extra expense resulting
from a covered loss.
The General Liability insurance coverage of a BOP
is comparable to a typical Commercial General Liability (CGL) policy,
providing protection against claims of bodily injury or property damage
for which your business may be liable.
The General Liability portion typically provides liability
insurance for the cost of defending lawsuits stemming from:
- Accidents that cause bodily injury
and/or property damage.
- Claims such as libel and slander.
- False advertising
insurance does not cover errors or negligence from professional services.
A BOP policy may include,
or you may be able to select as an option;
- Outdoor Sign Insurance
- Money and Securities Insurance
- Employee Dishonesty Insurance
- Water Back Up Insurance
